The mission of my research program is to address basic and clinical questions at the intersection of cancer metabolism, mitochondrial genetics, and cancer genomics, with a focus on translational applications in kidney cancer. Our research focuses on developing cutting-edge informatic and modeling approaches to address a single overarching question: how genotype and the tumor microenvironment cooperatively shape metabolic phenotypes.
